Tiger Stripes

With the arrival of cooler weather, I am finally getting in the mood to decorate for fall.    This year I am scaling back and trying to go for a more simplistic look and to use items I already have.

The only new purchases in this vignette are the pumpkins.     I was thrilled to find the 3 tiger striped ones at Walmart for the low price of $2.99.  My honey bought the big white one for me because he knows how much I love white pumpkins.

The basket was a find at TJ Maxx this past summer and the lantern was a QVC Today’s Special Value last year.    I picked the acorns in the lower right of the picture right off the oak tree in my yard.    Yes, my deep dark secret is out.   I am an acorn picker and a QVC-aholic.

Happy Fall Y’all!    Thanks for stopping by.

Oh how pretty. I love this arrangement in your basket. The berries, pumpkins and corn are just perfect and the lantern is a great touch. Very pretty. Thanks for joining TTT. Hugs, Marty

Simple is my favorite, and you've done it well using few things. Pumpkins, any color, are just the best for creating wonderful settings.
